1 kg potatoes,

3 egg yolks,

500 g wheat flour,

300 g mozzarella cheese,

olive oil.

  1. Wash well potatoes, boil and peel them.
  2. Mash potatoes and leave to cool down.
  3. Add the beaten egg yolk, olive oil and sifted flour. Mix well to obtain a thin dough.
  4. Slowly soften mozzarella in a container at a low temperature, mix and put into small moulds (2 x 2 cm). Then cool mozzarella to -18 °C.
  5. Roll the potato dough with a rolling pin and make two identical circles using moulds. Put a piece of frozen mozzarella on one circle and cover it with a second circle of dough. After that, manually shape gnocchi.
